Avan Lava is an up and coming - maybe already there - it's a bouncy techno pop dance band out of Brooklyn with tunes so sweet and frivolous, your ears may get cavities. Fully as dangerous as whistling in the backyard - this is a band that would have one of those tents at Coachella getting all jumpy. If you're under 30, floating on ecstasy, with a Stella in one hand and checking out the talent in the local meat market and Avan Lava is playing, well, you might be in temporary heaven. I'll be down the street, slurping a Bass Ale watching Wussy.
